VOLUNTEERING IN CIVIL PROTECTION AND DISASTER ASSISTANCE
Without voluntary work, our society would be a different one. Around 1.7 million people perform valuable voluntary work and thus contribute every day to maintaining community life in Germany.

We need this voluntary commitment now and in the future.
The campaign “Egal was du kannst, du kannst helfen” (No matter what you can do, you can help) of the Federal Office of Civil Protection and Disaster Assistance (BBK) aims to show the diversity of voluntary activities, to inspire more people to take up voluntary work and to demonstrate that each and every individual can get involved in a very individual way.

No matter what you can do, you can help.
